Marc Jacob's Spring Trench
Excuse me, but when did the trench coat ever go out of style? (The whole scenario reminds me of being at my high school prom. There was that point in the evening when the prom king and queen were about to be announced, and even though everyone in the audience knew exactly who it would be, we all pretended to be shocked when we heard that the captain of the football team and the head cheerleader were elected once again.)
My complaints about fashion editors aside, this year's spring collections have once again proved my underlying theory: trench coats will be hip until the planet stops spinning.
Now if you're in the market for a trench that will last you until the trench goes out of style (read: the end times), I highly recommend this season's marc by marc jacobs gabardine jacket in natural. With a Peter Pan collar, classic round buttons and a floral liner, this double-breasted trench is as timeless as the trench itself.
Remember, fashion fans: 10,000 fashion editors can't be wrong (except when they are, as in the case of Alexander McQueen).
